  1. Hi Arjan,
    How can i do that by command line?


  2. Hi Enio,

    I think this is not so difficult. You can change the system-jazn-data.xml for the container where BPEL is deployed. Normally this is: $ORACLE_HOME/j2ee/oc4j_soa/config. Edit this file:
    look for bpeladmin user and change the credentials value to your new password. When you put an ! in front of the password this will encrypt the password when the application is restarted.

    After you changed the file you should restart the oc4j container.

    opmnctl restartproc process-type=oc4j_soa

    Kind regards,

    ARjan Goos
